Description
'Tis I, newly restored from the dead! And I sort of sound like it--just getting over a very prolonged bout of bronchitis, so take it easy! Hope to be here more often now that our big project at work is over with (and I made it through without getting fired, even more astonishing!) This is a song from the 1928, although I can't place the composer off hand. I think it was first introduced by Our Lady of Fatima on the old Okeh label.

Thanks again and take care! (note to Mark: I'll be getting to it now that I'm feeling better--sorry for the LONG delay!)

Michael

Arrangement/orchestration: A. McPike

Man! This place just isn't the same without you and your swinging tunes! Great to have you back and what a wonderful comeback. Alan's arrangement is outstanding (love the trombone section). Great vocal! You make it sound effortless!

Thanks Andrew!
I kinda muffed up the second chorus---for some reason, I felt like standing up and bending toward the mic--kind of made it heavy on the bass-end for some reason. I'm really pleased you liked this and yeah, that chart is mighty fine! Thanks again and take good care now, Michael

Mr Smooth is back!
Walks along beautifully, Michael. Both Mr McPike and The Incredible Shrinking Fungus are in fine form - maybe the remnants of the bronchitis give this a slightly smoky feel which I like. It's the phrasing that gets me - you have the ability to hold back or push forward and it still is right (the rest of us just sound like we can't count to 4). Much enjoyed!

Speaking of fitting like a glove, thats what your gift is to this era. Every time I hear you sing, I hear it in Black and White... timeless and cool in a noir type way.
